“Devon’s continued progress on our ESG targets is something I’m extremely proud of,” said Rick Muncrief, president and CEO. “As a company we aim to lead by example by using the same thoughtful, disciplined, and balanced approach with our ESG performance as we do with our financial performance.

The latest comprehensive report highlights the Company’s progress towards its net zero ambition for scopes 1 & 2 GHG emissions by 2050 and other targets announced in June 2021. The report also details the Company's 2021 performance including key metrics on air emissions, water management practices, safety, diversity, equity and inclusion, board governance and community engagement.
